Nobody new how long this had been going on everything was collapsed all kindness and humanity gone. A tiny child was way crying lost and all alone it was famished, scared bleeding and chilled right through to the bone.
Death could no longer bare to hear it’s cries and decided to go and picked it up, he guessed it was about time this last child in world died.The devil said I’ll race you , with an evil grin. No ! cried death I want this pure heart, but for the original it is truly without sin!
The Devil did not argue he was having fun, with God as so far a no show he would get the soul’s of everyone.
Well here is the situation the horsemen were all back the earth was totally wasted it had been well and truly sacked! Peace and Love were broken their smiles completely gone the flowers in their hair all dead weeds and the light in their eyes all gone. Mercy was so very tired stretched beyond belief she had spread herself so thin all her plans had come to grief.
Faith and Hope had arrived but they had arrived too late which only goes to show that you cannot cheat fate!
The Devil was happily punching numbers of the souls that he could take , this was more than he could ever hoped for OH! the penances he would make them take!
Death got up and started the slow walk to the door every inch of his body ached and his back bore every second of millennia that had gone before.
Coffee anyone, Death heard the Devil say. As he hobbled towards the crying child Death wiped a tear away.
The suddenly a hand appeared in the sky it reached down and stroked the baby’s head to stop it’s cry……………………
